Thank you for supporting Through to 2

Thank you for supporting Through to 2

You are giving babies the building blocks to a healthy, happy life.

The first two years of a baby’s life are so important for their future. If babies don’t have the proper food and care during this special time, the effects can be devastating. Nearly half of child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition. And even for those who do survive, many must live with the consequences: they are likely to be small for their age, perform less well at school and be more susceptible to illness.

That's why your support is so important.

Why your help matters

You’ll help mothers give birth to healthy babies

If a mum doesn’t have enough to eat during pregnancy, it can lead to dangerous low birth weight and poor growth in their children. Your support could help provide antenatal care and nutrition for expectant mums.

You’ll be helping babies survive in times of crisis

When food is scarce due to poor harvests, tragically it’s the children who often suffer the most or die. Your gifts will help provide life-saving food for malnourished children.
